UsedVictoria Launches “The Deal” Offering Exclusive Local Daily Deals for Victoria Residents to Take Advantage of Great Savings in Their Community

The Deal Is 100% local and unlike the big group buying sites, The Deal does not require sign-
ups or registrations or a minimum number of buyers. The Deal expands on UsedVictoria’s
commitment of delivering Social Commerce to Victoria residents and businesses

Victoria, B.C. – October 6, 2011

Every day features great new deals from local businesses on The Deal. The deals are
easy to access with a simple click of the ‘Buy Now’ button allowing a quick secure transaction. There is no
registration so user inboxes are not filled with dozens of unwanted deals that end up getting deleted.

“Unlike other collective or group buying sites, you don’t have to sign up to get The Deal. That
means no emails and no spam. The days of having to do a daily delete are gone,” says Tish Hill General Manager. “No minimum number of buyers is needed to activate a deal
and The Deal is 100% local offering huge discounts while supporting local businesses.”

The Deal has taken off in popularity in pre-launch testing. The first deal sold out in 47 minutes. Comments
from users include some humorous stories about the lengths they’ll go to make sure they get The Deal –
including missing work and not walking their dogs (sorry doggies) so they’d be home on their computers
when The Deal is posted. Some people just marched on down to the offices to get the
deal because they knew it would sell out quickly.

The deals are limited by time and number so they are in high demand with many selling out. The limited
numbers are actually a benefit to the local businesses who participate. The big group buying sites
have left many small businesses overwhelmed by selling many more coupons than the businesses
can reasonably service. On The Deal businesses choose how many deals they would like to offer local

The Deal offers many benefits to local businesses including:

  • exposure to millions of quality customers,
  • no long-term contracts,
  • driving a large number of social media savvy new customers to businesses literally overnight,
  • and trial marketing – new customers give businesses the opportunity to dazzle them and get them coming back and sharing their experiences by word of mouth and online via social media.
